In the middle of my aussie install into my d30 and i ran into a problem. I have 3.07's so i do not need to remove the carrier i can but i dont need to. I tried to punch out the pin that holds the cross shaft for the spiders in and its almost out and the bit i was using snapped inside and it hasnt moved since...pretty pissed any ideas to get it out. without removing the carrier would be better since i tried to and it doesnt seem to want to come out. Thanks guys
to remove the carrier, slide the axle shafts out, and use a pry bar between the carrier and the housing to get it out. its alot easier if u take the carrier out. as far as the snapped bit problem, use another bit i guess.

no its the pin that hold the cross pin in ...my genius dad decided to try to help and stick some like idk what it was ..like a skinny file into it and it snapped when i realized what he put in it i flipped out and have been banging on it to get it out for about 2 hours now ..i was thinking i would need to drill it out but that scares me
i got it out i just got a bigger hammer and as i grew angrier it worked its way out..since the pin is hollow the thing he used as a punch just slid inside and seperated it and as i drove it down it just went deeper and made it get stuck more...its all done now so i should be all set it in the morning, i hope i put the spacers facing the right way i cant remember which way i put them i hope it doesnt hurt anything if i didnt.
The carrier shims?!?! YESSSS those NEED to be in how you took them out or you could screw things up perty bad. If you don't remember, you need to have to have the back-lash verified before you jack up your gears.
no or atleast i dont think they were the carrier shims, it was the peices that came with the locker. the only peices without the teeth on them, it said to make sure the flat sides face each other and im pretty sure thats how i put it though
